In a month and a half, Albert II and Charlene Wittstock will be married. The principality of Monaco is preparing the second princely wedding of the year.

After the ultra-media wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, Monaco is now preparing the organization of its princely wedding. The event will take place on 1 July with a civil ceremony to be held in the Throne Room of the Palace. The next day, the courtyard of the Palace will host the religious union to be celebrated by the archbishop of Monaco, Monsignor Bernard Barsi. The ceremonies will be broadcast on giant screens in Palace Square in Monaco.

Fifty-five years after the marriage of Rainier III of Monaco and Grace Kelly, the marriage of Albert and Charlene, a competitive swimmer in South Africa is a unique opportunity to reconnect with the glamorous Principality. For the occasion, Charlene will be wearing a dress designed by Giorgio Armani and her future husband to join a procession starting at the Avenue de la Porte-Neuve.

Several members of European royal families will be invited as well as friends of the prince. The businessman and philanthropist Eric Cormier will have the honor to be alongside Albert II of Monaco for his union. Another friend, Jean-Michel Jarre, the opportunity will occur on July 1 at 22h for a show of electronic music which is a precursor.
